Bill 124 

In support of the nursing profession in Ontario, Council passed a motion supporting frontline health care workers and requesting the provincial government to review the cause of the shortage of staff when they meet with the Ontario Nurses Association.  

Caledon Seniors Centre 

Council adopted a recommendation to recognize the contributions of longtime community volunteers Margaret Patterson and Beverly Nurden. As a result, two new rooms currently under construction at the Caledon Seniors Centre will be named the Patterson Room and the Beverley Nurden Room. 

Visitor Management 

During the pandemic, the Town of Caledon saw an increase in tourism that put extra pressure on facilities, parks, amenities, parking and visitor traffic to our hamlets and villages. In response to a recommendation from the Economic Development division, Council supported the establishment of a Task Force to implement the Town’s Visitor Management Plan
